American 16 Year Old Whiskey

A Whiskey that's been aged for 16 years epitomises a well-seasoned spirit. Throughout these sixteen years, the interplay between the cask and the liquid melds the fiery zeal of a fresh spirit with the nuanced depth that only time imparts, forging an elegant taste journey.

American Whiskey, including those that boast a maturation of 16 years, weaves a tale of cultural significance, pioneering efforts, and its seamless integration into America's historic fabric. These spirits, aged through years, even up to sixteen in some cases, evolved as early settlers crafted them from indigenous grains, reflecting the vast and varied American terrains.

Bourbon, which may be aged for lengthy durations like 16 years, maintains strict production standards, with a base mash of at least 51% corn and ageing in new, charred oak barrels, leading to its hallmark sweet essence. Tennessee Whiskey, possibly seeing 16 years of maturation, resembles Bourbon but integrates the Lincoln County Process, resulting in added smoothness. Rye Whiskey, which can be matured up to or beyond 16 years, is characterised by its bold, spicy palate due to its 51% rye content. Corn Whiskey, even when aged for as long as 16 years, delivers a pronounced grainy taste, driven by its 80% corn composition. The emerging American Single Malt occasionally matured for close to 16 years, is crafted from 100% malted barley, promoting production at a singular distillery while championing unique American innovations.

Emerging from the shadows of Prohibition, American Whiskey, including variants aged for 16 years, is witnessing a vibrant revival. Contemporary craft distilleries are at the forefront, pushing boundaries with inventive techniques and reviving age-old formulas.
